Welcome Henry,

i know you were not one of those authoritarian at e-sangha.

If the subject of restrictions come up, i would like to put a question:

At e-sangha for some time there was a place representing my tradition, Yungdrung Bon,
that was eliminated after some time.

Would it be possible to have a place again, here?
I could invite some good contributors.
I would find it beatiful to be able to stay together at the same place with other vajrayana and mahayana traditions.

Just a humble request, i am not intending to generate any heat.

I support the idea ...

Hi Tatpurusa,

Thanks for your suggestion and your interest in bringing in some new members. I'll bring this up with the team and we'll discuss.

Best,
Laura

Hello tatpurusa, :)

When Malcolm did close the Bon forum out of personal motivations, Mr. Henry from Singhapore was not anymore active at e-sangha.

If Mr. Henry was not involved in those things that is what i doubt, because of personal experiences with him.
But all in all the ship was slowly sinking due to karma.

Best wishes with your personal practice

In Bon
Kalden Yungdrung

Greetings,

As per the related topic in the Announcement forum, Henry has stepped down from moderating duties due to other commitments.

Metta,
Retro. :)
